Having a loved one that is struggling with drug addiction is one of the most difficult situations a family can face. The ripple effects of your loved one’s drug addiction are often far reaching. Often, attempts to address your family member’s struggle with drugs are met with fierce resistance, especially if they are in denial about their problem. There are methods to get your loved one into drug addiction recovery without a fight. Inpatient drug addiction recovery is one of the most successful ways to receive treatment for an addiction. Often, the addicted person needs to change their way of thinking before taking this step. An intervention can help your loved one see things different a prompt a transition into treatment.
What is an intervention?
An intervention is a way to help your loved one change the way they view their addiction. In a non-combative atmosphere, your loved one is encouraged to take a look at their behavior and to understand how their behavior affects those around them.
What is an interventionist?
An interventionist’s goal is to help the people in the addicted person’s life become a part of their recovery. The interventionist provides support and education and can help facilitate the intervention.
What happens during an intervention?
During an intervention, the addicted person’s family and friends are able to confront their loved one as having a problem. In a respectful way, the people taking part in the intervention tell the addicted person how they have been affected by the addiction. The goal is to get the addicted person to accept that they have a problem and need drug addiction recovery. When you have a loved one with a drug addiction, it can be difficult to know where to turn.
